Ai Weiwei: "Today Is The Darkest Day For Hong Kong," Dissidents Will Be "Disappeared"

|

Chinese artist and activist Ai Weiwei warned that China's imposition of restrictive new laws on Hong Kong could mean lawyers and dissidents could be "disappeared."

"Today is the darkest day for Hong Kong," he told BBC. "[This makes] Hong Kong just another city in China, which means lawyers and activists can be disappeared or sentenced to a lifetime. This is going to be horrifying... The establishment of Hong Kong can completely collapse after today."


"I think they will be put in jail, many of them. They are very clearly against the communist control, and that under Chinese law is subversive of state power, political crime."
